What is HydraFacial MD®?
A HydraFacial® is a non-invasive resurfacing treatment that removes dead skin cells and other impurities while cleansing and hydrating the fresh, new skin. This treatment is non-irritating and leaves patients with younger, more radiant skin.
What is the difference between HydraFacial MD® and Microdermabrasion?
The HydraFacial® is an exfoliation treatment that targets a similar result as Microdermabrasion treatments. However, there are some very important differences between the two.
Microdermabrasion involves applying small crystals to your face to buff away the dry, flaky skin. The goal of the microdermabrasion facial is to leave you with a shiny, soft face clean of old and dry skin. A common side effect of Microdermabrasion is the redness and swelling that occurs as the facial breaks up old cells. Your body then creates new cells that give you the fresh, shiny look. What draws many people to Microdermabrasion is the comparatively low cost when compared to other skin products or processes; but the frequency you can go back for more treatments is dependent upon how much your skin can take.
The HydraFacial® involves an exfoliation technique using a spiral tip with Vortex technology to exfoliate and clean your skin. Additionally, the HydraFacial® uses an infusion process to deliver serums and nutrients. There are few or no side effects, meaning no redness or puffiness after the treatment. The HydraFacial® will leave you with better skin tone, less congestion, soft, hydrated skin. One of the things that really sets the HydraFacial® apart from other skin resurfacing procedures is its ability to moisturize the skin during the treatment process.
What you should know about the HydraFacial MD® procedure?
The HydraFacial® is a mild treatment that produces subtle results. The HydraFacial® also won’t cause downtime for your skin, which means you can immediately return to your normal activities. After treatments, you’ll notice a freshening in the appearance and texture of your skin.
The HydraFacial® was named the “Best In-Office facial treatment” by New Beauty magazine in 2015, and was created for people interested in removing fine lines and other signs of aging. Depending on what you are interested in targeting, the HydraFacial® process can have anywhere from four to six steps.. These steps include: cleansing and exfoliation, acid peel, extraction and serum application. Additional home care steps may be recommended to enhance and prolong the results.
What type of skin problems do HydraFacial®s treat?
The HydraFacial® is typically recommended for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, oily, acne-prone skin and hyperpigmentation. While often used in combination with more aggressive treatments, it, alone, is not suitable for treating deep wrinkles and scars or deep hyperpigmentation problems.
